Neil Palmer is a Brighton-based author, songwriter and artist. Avoiding traditional PR routes, he’s remained a countercultural figure. Neil plays guitar and provides the vocals for The Spartan Dreggs (see picture), in a musical collaboration with artist, writer and musician, Billy Childish. This partnership, which began in 2010, has produced five LPs and a dozen 45s of punk rock, rhythm 'n' blues and pop songs of the epic and the mundane. A sixth LP by Wild Billy Childish and The Spartan Dreggs, as yet untitled, is due out in November. Since 2011, Palmer has published books of fiction through the LedaTape Organisation in Melbourne, Australia. All available through Amazon
